Anyone who reads my blog regularly will be aware that I’ve been blogging with WordPress.com for some time now. I’ve really enjoyed using WordPress.com and would most certainly recommend it to anyone looking to get started in the world of blogging.

However, after careful consideration I’ve decided to move my blog to a self-hosted site which is a little more technical but better suites to my needs. The URL to my blog remains the same www.bathknightblog.com and all previous content is included. You may see some slight changes visually but nothing too drastic.

I was really happy with the blog transfer and will now have plenty of opportunities to make visiting the Bath-Knight Blog as user friendly as possible. However, I sadly lost contact with my wordpress.com followers and would love for you, and any new readers, to click my e-mail subscribe box to ensure that we stay in touch. Simply type in your e-mail address and you’ll be kept up to date with all of my posts.

Thanks for reading and making the Bath-Knight Blog such a success.

Top Tips- Blogging tips for the elderly

As you can probably tell I really enjoy blogging. For me it’s a great platform to tell people about my day to day life, my business and the industry which I work in.

Personally blogging has become an outlet which allows me to express my thoughts and opinions, which is why I think blogging is perfect for silver surfers. It’s limitless in a sense of how much you can write about and is a great way to keep your mind active and share views.

I have to admit that I was a little sceptical about blogging in the beginning, that’s mainly because I knew little about it. However, having grown to adore it I thought I would share some top tips to help you on your way into the ‘blogsphere’.

blogging

  1.  Set up a blog- Sounds pretty obvious but firstly you need to set up a blog. I like ‘Wordpress’ as it’s a free blog service which allows you to customise your blog with a selection of layouts. Built in functions allow you to add photos, video and multimedia elements and most of all its really easy to use.
  2. Find something you like and write about it- Lots of people think that if you have a blog it needs to cover a specific area of interest like fishing or fashion or crafts. If you’ve got a passion which you solely want to focus your blog around great. But if you haven’t then don’t be put off. Instead write about a variety of subjects which interest you- eventually you will find a topic that you enjoy writing about.
  3. Post regularly- Posting regularly is important because the more blogs you write the more people want to come back and read. Sometimes it’s difficult to think up new blog ideas, I have first-hand experience of this. My advice would be to find something which you’ve enjoyed doing during the day and write about it. Maybe you’ve had something wonderfully delicious for dinner- why not share the recipe!
  4. Tell people about your blog- If your blogging then the chances are you will be online and have an email account or be a part of a social network site. These are great ways to tell your friends and family about your blog. Once you’ve published a blog why not tweet the link, post it on your Facebook wall or email it to your contact list. Chances are friends will leave a comment and that’s it’s a great feeling!
  5. Be open minded & stick with it- Blogging is like anything – it requires time, effort and a little open mindedness. Don’t be afraid to write your personal opinion but keep in mind that other people might disagree. Don’t be offended because that’s the beauty of blogging, there is plenty of room for everyone’s view.
     Importantly stick with your blog- it doesn’t matter how many views you get. Blogging is a great way to write about things which you’re passionate about. And in turn, is a great activity to keep your mind active.

It is my last blog of the year and what a wonderful year it has been.

Here at Bath-Knight we have had an exciting digital year, developing our presence online and working hard to make the most of online resources.

I am extremely happy to be part of the digital movement, now an active user on Twitter, where we follow our customers, fellow mobility aid services, generous charities and the odd celebrity.

As I have encouraged my readers to get online to see the benefits it has to offer myself and the team have done the same. Creating a Facebook page especially for Bath-Knight and also for Portia the office dog, we wouldn’t want her to feel left out of our exciting adventure into the digital world. Here I can view customer profiles, upload photographs and get involved in conversations.

Finally, I have ventured into the blogsphere right here on wordpress. It is a wonderful place to note down what is happening in and around Bath-Knight. From marathons for wonderful charities, plans of a MoonWalk around the beautiful city of Edinburgh, celebratory occasions in the office, sharing campaigns which I think will really be beneficial to you and finally sharing my ideas, recipes and personal thoughts.

I have thoroughly enjoyed our step into the digital world and hope that 2011 brings more excitement, blog views and twitter followers.

Bath-Knight is taking a short time out to enjoy the Christmas period. We will be back on 4th January 2011 with some great blog ideas for you to look forward to!

I and all at Bath-Knight wish you a very Merry Christmas and Happy New year!

Take care and stay warm.
Annette.
